call today from the international energy agency. fueling that energy renaissance: a boost in oil and shale gas because of new technologies like fracking. the group also expects the u.s. will be a net exporter by 2030, meaning we'll sell more oil than we bring in. right now the u.s. imports 20% of its energy needs. >> susie: so our word on the street tonight is "oil". joining us, gregg greenberg, reporter at the street.com. hey, gregg, i know you have been talking to a lot of oil experts today. it's kind of hard to imagine the u.s. after all these years being energy independent. what were they telling new what did you hear? look, scsi, the trend is certainly favorable. it's nice to hear we are producing more energy here in america and much greater than the reverse but i have to take reports like this with a grigg grain of salt. we have been hearing about peak energy for a long time, hearing about saudi arabia's reserves for a long time and you have to take it with a haley dose of skepticism, good news then again you have to be a little bit keptic. >> susie: all right, but if you d
by financial and energy groups. now, after the closing bell, the focus was on cicso systems. the internet gear maker reported its quarterly results late today. and those results were two cents better than estimates. net sales were up from last year, too, and higher than expected. c-s-c-o has been undergoing a restructuring for the past year, managing uncertain demand for its telecommunications equipment's pinched profit margins. the stock was flat before tonight's earnings report. shares were up about 4% in extended hours trading. now, as erika reported earlier, home depot's strong third quarter earnings and optimistic outlook really helped drive buying interest. today's 3.6% rally came on more than double its usual volume, and takes the stock to its highest price since 1999. but the buyi interest did not extend to home depot's main rival, lowe's. lowe's shares were essentially ghchanged evebu lihesy r tlie aavangthraveol slightly heavier than average. home depot wasn't alone in reporting strong earnings. dick's sporting goods boosted full-year outlook after a better than expected quarter.an s
. to be in commander in wartime is one of the most difficult things. you need great intellectual energy and physical energy. petraeus is the first guy since world war ii the public has known. the irony, it to me -- one of the surprises to me in writing this book is the people we lionize, the soldiers of world war ii, they were the people became the generals of vietnam. the we rightly demonized. they're the same men. the difference is, world war ii, there was accountability. in world war ii, success was rewarded, the failure was punished. nobody knows -- first american commander in the african european in the army in world war ii. he was fired. a bunch of other generals were fired. they were replaced by names -- in 1940, dwight eisenhower was lieutenant-colonel on the west coast. george marshall picked him out and said that is the type of guy i need and began promoting these guys. we do not have leadership these days. instead, we have a parade of generals go into iraq. mediocrity, not doing much. coming home feeling entitled to a promotion. that is what has happened to the military over the last 50 y
energy prices. without food and energy, core inflation was up two tenths of a perce.re wan troll s eet, the dow fell 28.5 points, the nasdaq was down almost ten, and the s&p 500 dropped two. if you want to know how the economy is faring, it pays to keep an eye on walmart. after all, it has over 10,000 stores across the globe, selling more than $1 billion worth of stuff every day. it earned $1.08 per share in the third quarter, a penny more than estimates, and up 11% from last year. but revenues were a little shy of forecast, and walmart's outlook for this quarter was less than anticipated. compare that to rival target's quarterly earnings-- four cents better than expectations at 81 cents a share and a holiday outlook that didn't disappoint. erika miller reports on what the results say about all-important the holiday season. >> reporter: $3.6 billion. that almost unthinkable number is what walmart earned in the third quarter alone. it works out to about $40 million in profits a day. to wall street analysts, it's proof the company's turnaround strategy is working. >> what walmart does so

, members of the house energy and commerce committee had their first chance to question the f.d.a. lawmakers wanted to know how the f.d.a. knew of problems at the pharmacy as early as 2002 but took no action. the agency later issued a warning letter in 2006 but again no tougher action was taken, either. >> after a tragedy like this, the first question we all ask is: could this have been prevented? after an examination of the documents produced by the massachusetts board of pharmacy and the f.d.a., the answer here appears to be yes. >> reporter: some experts contend the f.d.a. already has the authority to regulate large compounding pharmacies. but in her first public remarks today, f.d.a. commissioner dr. peggy hamburg said her agency needs more power. dr. hamburg proposed a two-tier system where smaller, more traditional pharmacies are regulated by the state. larger pharmacies of all kinds would be overseen by the f.d.a. >> the fact that we have unclear, limited and contested authorities and ambiguities in the law, and a crazy quilt of legal authority has required us to be very reactive, res

, frankly, the time and energy to devote to trying to catch up. they thought they could lock down this primary nomination by the end of january or early february and what end up happening is they played the sort of extended game of whack-a-mole where a different candidate came up every month and it wasn't until the end of april that they secured the nomination and at that point the romney campaign was pretty much broke. his image was battered by the nominating battle where he lurched to the right on a number of issues and he was in a bad position to take on the obama machine. they began to try to assemble a ground game and started raising money but even up until the end of the election this month, they didn't catch up displood in just a very little time we have left, carol leigh what, would you say the obama folks said made the difference? the front-end spending that allowed them to soften romney up ahead of going into the republican convention, and they caught some breaks, too. if you remember, romney's 47% tape came right after the moment and underscored-- the argument they were
